General Dentistry

A general dentist’s number one intention is disease prevention. A general dentist is able to accurately diagnose all types of dental conditions and choose the best treatment for each case in order to prevent the onset of dental related diseases. The dentist is responsible for coordinating all services and treatment plans in order to satisfy the patients and fit all of their needs. If your case requires more complex treatment, the general dentist might work in a team with other specialists in order to provide you with the best dental care and service possible.

A general dentist will provide various procedures, such as:

  • Restorative Procedures: Our general dentist will be able to perform a dental examination and  consult you on any restorative procedures you might need such as root canals, orthodontic or dental implant treatments, dentures, crowns or bridges depending on each individual case.
  • Preventive Procedures: The most important step to taking care of your dental health is preventative care so you avoid diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Professional cleanings and regular checkups prevent further diseases and help you to maintain good oral health. If you are into sports, there is a high risk to get injured, so general dentist might suggest you make a custom-made mouthguard in order to prevent dental trauma. There are many preventative treatments such as fluoride applications and dental sealants, which helps to protect the teeth from dental caries that your dentist might recommend.

Dr.Habjan will provide you with wellness tips and tell which foods benefit your oral health the most, and which ones you should avoid in order to prevent tooth decay.

Visits

You should visit your general dentist every six months, even though you don’t have any concerns with your oral health or you don’t experience any tooth pain or sensitivity. Sometimes you don’t even feel any symptoms, but your dentist finds out that oral disease is already destroying the tissues of your teeth. That’s why such visits are very important for everyone. Keep in mind that a good dental hygiene routine at home, regular dental cleanings, and checkups are the key to maintaining the beautiful smile you have, and keeping your teeth healthy for a long time.
